The Current State of Transgender Rights and Religious Accommodations Under Title VII
The employment rights of transgender individuals and long-standing religious accommodations under Title VII are timely and important issues in light of current US Government policy and enforcement and recent developments in case law. This program will address President Trump's May 2017 Executive Order and Attorney General Jeff Sessions' October 2017 memorandum relating to transgender rights and continuing existing religious accommodations under Title VII and other federal laws. Join us to hear from a moderated panel of experienced practitioners in transgender and religious rights about how to address the past and current state of federal and state laws, and case law relating to protection of these rights. Join Talia Stoessel, labor and employment attorney at Bennett, Hartman, Morris, and Kaplan LLP and Herb Grey, solo practitioner in Beaverton with a general civil practice that includes extensive experience in litigation of constitutional and civil rights claims with an emphasis on religious liberty and conscience matters. Nora Broker will moderate and is a labor and employment attorney at Bennett, Hartman, Morris & Kaplan LLP.
